Waipu is a small settlement with Scottish heritage, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the Pacific paradise of Bream Bay.
The number-one reason to visit is Waipu Cove, a long sandy beach with safe swimming, surfing and fishing. The little ones will love exploring the rock pools and secluded surrounding. The settlement is also known for horse-riding around Waipu, Uretiti and Ruakaka areas.
The beachside cafe is an idyllic spot for breakfast, lunch, or an open-air dinner among the fairy lights. Other local attractions include a museum, art gallery and golf courses.
Embark on a 1.5-hour walk around the Waipu Caves where you will find stalactites, stalagmites and glow worms. Or explore the Waipu Coastal Walkway with stunning rock formations similar to the Pancake Rocks.
